Nancy Herman
20" x 24"
oil on canvas

I have not been posting lately as I have been working on this larger canvas.  Autumn to me is the season of emotional ups and downs.  The trees and foliage are breathtakingly beautiful but you know it is all going to end in the bare grey and tans of icy cold of winter.  No more sitting on the porch watching the sun go down before dinner.  The sun is down before you are finished work.  The light is dramatic when it is out but it all points to only one thing..the end of nature for the year.  In this canvas I have tried to capture all these feelings.  It is a further step in the new direction my painting seems to be heading.  What do you think?
